This is a DL sized type specimen, those that complain about the product clearly have not read the description. Great little book. My only issue is the lack of space given to the inner margin, parts of the content get lost, but it doesn't make a huge impact on the typefaces presented. Great job and I look forward to volume 02.

I was very excited to have received the Little Black Font Book. It includes beautiful typography examples in different styles and it's a great source of inspiration. The only downside to it is that it is, well, little. I would have liked a few more pages. Still, nice thing to have for all designers and typography lovers.

Purchased this after reading a review on a design site that this was a must have item - was blissfully unaware that their was a typo on the font cover where it should have read REALLY LITTLE BLACK BOOK. Says it all I'm afraid

Considering the price is not bad,a a small catalog of fonts well presented. Not really usefull but inspiring if you are tired of looking for fonts on the screen of your computer, to download them after.

The words in its cover are precise: this book is black, is little and contains fonts. Just lacked to say that the fonts in there are the coolest ones! And yet,the book arrived in a flash, quite surprising.
